My fiance is being transferred to HK, likely in September.
He'll be working in Central (a French bank) so we have looked at conduit road already but its a bit too disconnected from shops/bars etc and more for families than we'd like.
We liked Kowloon but it seems a hassle to have to take the train all the time, especially as we love to socialise and go out at night and I see from another thread that living in Kowloon means leaving parties at midnight to get the last train home?
I will also try to get a native English teacher job once we come out (with TESOL) so am I right in assuming the adult English teaching schools will be Central too?
Our budget is 30-40k HKD..
Very modern/refurb'd (ie clean! Saw some rough old places on Conduit with stains all over the bathroom)
Oven (very hard to find)
c800sf (we are not too bothered about size for now, but <700sf is too small)
Need to be able to sleep at night - so high up if it's in a noisy part of town!
We know we would be looking at places done up especially for Western expats so the prices will skyrocket..
I am sure I sound totally clueless, so any advice appreciated!
